The traditions of Songkran (or Thai New Year) have a long history and are still observed in Thailand and other parts of Southeast Asia. Songkran represents the passing of the sun from Taurus into Aries, a solar event which marks the beginning of a new astrological year. Songkran is April 13 and the Thai New Year festivities are officially held April 13-15 but the entire week is filled with activities and celebration.
